Known as the northern gateway to the New Forest, the small riverside town of Fordingbridge offers beautiful scenery and a rich history. Built in medieval times the graceful seven arched bridge is a town landmark.
The Avon Valley Path passes directly through the town, and keen walkers can follow it north to Salisbury or south to Christchurch Priory and the sea. For the less energetic the riverside park is the perfect setting for a Sunday stroll, a picnic and a game of boules.
For sport lovers, Fordingbridge is home to the 148-year-old football club The Turks FC and the Fordingbridge Rugby Club. During the summer you can while away hours watching or playing cricket on the sports field, or enjoy the tranquillity of fishing on the river.
